YORCHI I'm an idiot, they said distemper, not disentery...I'm sorry for the confusion, I was sad when he told me.

He said they couldn't do anything for her. So yes, she was pts.

blackshep Oh no! I hope you can hold them off until you get a real diagnosis! I'm so sorry, please fight for her and at least get a diagnosis.

Can you take her to another vet for a second opinion? Shelters have limited funds so I think euthing is sometimes their answer when they don't want to put the money into tests.

I'm so sorry.

misslesleedavis1 [QUOTE=YORCHI;5107226]I got a call from the animal control officer on my way home. She had disentry. He thinks she had it all along from when she was first adopted before me or she got it from the shelter itself. Either way, she's gonna be put to sleep tonight. I'm super sad especially as I'm going through and throwing away everything she touched. Now we need to keep an eye on our other dogs and make sure they don't develop any symptoms.

I guess that's it. I don't know what else to do. I want another but I don't know if I will or not adopt

A girl and her dog I understood it as a symptom as well. I HOPE this pup isn't going to be PTS! Dysentery seems to be a blanket term for diarrhea and has at least three different causes, al of which are treatable.

I was looking at this link. I thought dysentery was a symptom, rather than a diagnosis.
